HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c245

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the new policy of the Royal Mint in entering into competition with private enterprise in medal making as exemplified by the exhibits of the Royal Mint at the Royal Academy; and whether this action on the part of a Government Department in competing with private enterprise has his approval?


The present practice of the Royal Mint with regard to medals was reviewed by my predecessor, and after full consideration I have not seen any reason to take a new decision upon it. I am advised that there is no reason to think that the production of good medals by private firms will be checked, but rather the contrary.
